Museum of Medieval and Modern Art of Basilicata - Palazzo Lanfranchi - Matera

The Lanfranchi building, today the home of the Museum of Medieval and Modern Art of Basilicata, is not only an elegant collector of objects and testimonies of the territory, it is a useful tool to better understand the entire Lucan reality of the past. The construction was erected in the seventeenth century as a diocesan seminary at the behest of Bishop Vincenzo Lanfranchi (1665-1676), who entrusted the project to the friar Francesco da Copertino. The building, built from 1668 to 1672, has a structure facing the new part of the city (ie the "floor"), towards the current Piazzetta Pascoli, and incorporates the pre-existing church of the Carmine. Due to its location, the building represents the first sign of urban expansion that goes beyond the Sassi, as well as the greatest baroque monument in Matera. In front of the door is the sculpture "La Goccia" created by the Japanese artist Kengiro Azuma.
